5 Year Anniversary Events and Details!

Monday, November 16, 2020

It's almost hard to believe that Must Love Yarn has now been open for 5 years, it often feels like it was just yesterday that we opened our doors.  Then I think back on all of the wonderful people we've met over the years, the friendships we've built, all of the wonderful customer projects that have been knit, and surely we must have been open longer than 5 years to be able to fit in all of those wonderful memories!

This year has been one heck of a year, hasn't it?!  It seems like things are changing in the blink of an eye.  We've had to take things day by day, like everyone, not knowing if we'd be able to welcome customers back into the store as the pandemic continues on.  We've now been back open for about 6 months, and what better way to celebrate than with a party!  We had hoped to put on a big bash at the shop this year for our 5 year anniversary, but with all that's going on, we want to keep everyone as safe as possible and we're turning to technology to do so.  This also allows us to visit with our customers from all over who have supported us over the years.  We have a few different events that we'll be hosting, be sure to read below for all of the details!

Join us for a special Virtual Knit Group as we give thanks to you!
When: Thursday, November 26, 7-9pm
How: Zoom!  Here are the details so you can join us:

Crafting for Critters

Join Must Love Yarn on February 1st from 1-5pm as we have an informal gathering of crafters to make pouches, wraps, blankets, mittens and other items, needed to help rehabilitate wildlife that has been so greatly affected by the wildfires in Australia. Bring your needles, hooks, sewing machines, fabric & yarn and we’ll craft the afternoon away to help the animals. We’ll have some donated yarn on hand and some patterns too. Please message us with any questions or give the shop a call. Can’t participate but want to donate? Yarn and fabric would be great as well as money to help ship the items to Australia! Thank you, we hope to see you February 1st!
